Wow, this is a tough post to write, and if I’m honest, one I’ve been putting off for some time.
I think it’s time to call it a day here at My Make Do and Mend Life.
It feels like I have moved on to new things, and I am excruciatingly aware that I am not one of those people who is able to do lots of different things all at the same time. Or at least, not able to do all of them well.
Since launching my ethical coaching business earlier on this year, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to create the time and the head space to write for this site.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still hugely passionate about Making Do and Mending, and all things sustainable living – I can’t see that ever changing – but I only have so much time in the day, and only so much energy.
For the time being, my time and energy seem to naturally want to focus on my new business, and I had failed to remember quite how much of both it takes to get anything new online up and running and gaining traction!
So I just wanted to say a massive, massive THANK YOU to each and every one of you. For reading, for commenting, for tweeting and re-tweeting. For anyone who has come and heard me speak, or read any my articles in various publications. For being my cheerleaders, my community, and for keeping me going this long.
It’s been an absolute blast, and a truly life-changing experience.
I could never have imagined being where I am now five years ago when I first had the idea for a year buying nothing new.
It has led me on an amazing adventure that saw me step right out of my comfort zone into social media land, public speaking, radio and TV appearances, and writing.
And best of all it led me to you guys, and to the brilliant community that we have created over in the A Make Do and Mend Life Facebook group (which isn’t going anywhere for now!).
So thank you again for all your support and encouragement.
I will miss you all, but I hope you will keep in touch, and follow me on my new adventure on my new site.
So for now at least, over and out.
